It was all quiet until the home half of the 2nd when with Willy Garcia on base Kevan Smith belts a homer to center for a 2 to 0 Sox lead.

Bottom of the 3rd, the Sox would take out the bats and add 4 more runs starting when, Anderson and Melky on the pond, Abreu’s single get Anderson home for a 3 to 0 lead. Avi Garcia’s double to center gets Melky home, Abreu makes it home thanks to a throwing error for a 5 to 0 lead. Matt Davidson’s single to left helped get Avi home for a 6 to 0 Sox lead

Top of the 4th Baltimore gets on the board with a pair for a Sox 6 to 2 lead. Bottom of the inning would see, Melky and Jose already on the pond, Avi with a single to center, speed would get Melky and Jose home for an 8 to 2 Sox lead.

Bottom of 5th had Willy Garcia exploding a triple and coming home thanks to Smith’s sac fly to center extending the Sox lead 9 to 2

All quiet till the 7th inning with Matt Davidson smacking a solo shot for a 10 to 2 Sox lead.

Top of the 8th Baltimore would cut the Sox lead to 10 to 6. They would go on to add 1 more in the top of the 9th for a 10 to 7 loss in the first of a 4 game series.

With the day’s events the Sox have picked up a game, 6.0 games out of first.
